A 2014 Roadmap Part 1: The 7D Mark II is Coming [CR2]
« on: December 19, 2013, 02:09:40 PM »
What’s coming in 2014?
We’ve already been told that 2014 is going to be the “year of the lens” from Canon. Some lenses are getting replaced, while there will be new ones added to the already impressive number of options.

Camera bodies are also going to be front and center. I have received word from a CR3 level source that there will in fact be a 7D Mark II equivalent. The prosumer APS-C camera will live on for at least another generation. The timeframe for an announcement wasn’t given.

More to come once we confirm a few more things.

That's great news, especially considering the CR2 tag. Thanks!  :)

Thankfully, hopefully labeled 7DmII, I love my 7D

lets see a super high ISO which is workable, 15 frames a sec,  lots of good stuff..

canon blow the industry away by giving us a new world class sensor tech which will blow all full frame away.  Tuen up that tech in the ff and blow us away again...

hey a guy can wish can't he....

So. Year of the lens and year of the camera.

But will it also be year of the sensor?

Canon has not had one of those years since the 5D2. ::)

Don't blame Canon for rumor trolls that like to stir things up. If Canon has ever said anything official, I'm pretty sure it's been that they intended to offer a 7DII or equivalent.

An 'equivalent' huh?   ;)

Well, at least they are coming out with a successor. I only played with one once.  I was extremely impressed by it.

Ahh ha ha ha. It couldn't have been any other way.

Too bad about the 5D4 not having all the capabilities of a pro APS-C and mid range Full Frame all wrapped up in one.

You never know, maybe it'll still come true.

I don't have any doubt they will release a successor. I think the back and forth has more to do with the naming scheme than anything.

Wait, aside from people ranting about DR, what exactly is wrong with the 5Dmk3 that has everyone clamoring for a successor?

This is good news – hints of ‘great news’ in the future. Another CR2… that I hope will become CR3… and then… reality- a 7DmkII.

My most desired camera item at the moment is a EF Canon 50mm f/1.4 – f/2 USM (IS).  As there was a CR2 about that recently, I’m hoping it will come out in 2014.   :)

And then… this – a replacement for my beloved 7D.  (Not that mine is broken, in fact I continue to remain impressed at how capable a camera it is). But a 7DmkII would be my next most desire camera gear to consider (when/if I need a replacement).

Improved IQ (less noise, bit more DR) at any ISO level would be my main request for improvements… mind you, I’m not a pixel peeper, and I’m happy with how my 7D does, it really is a great camera that I’ve loved since I bought it 4 years ago. I’ve taken thousands and thousands of photos with it, and it rarely disappoints.   8)

Other features to be:
- DPAF – perhaps even a noted improvement over the 70D’s revolutionary technology
- spot & partial metering tied to active AF point

Looking forward to what will appear in 2014.  In the meantime, I’ll be taking lots of photos with my 7D and existing lenses.  ;)

Price will be (puts a pinky to the corner of his mouth) one MILLION dollars. muh ha ha ha

This is a great one-line quote – that caused me a laugh this morning (here in Australia time)! Thanks, dstppy!!!  ;D

Best wishes and a great pre-Christmas weekend to all.

Paul

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.
